The Business Challenge

In the U.S. alone, the current shortage of information security professionals has reached 500,000. This means two things for businesses that need a qualified CISO: 1) Finding an experienced candidate will be very difficult. 2) Hiring a full-time executive will be costly, because their services are in high demand.

These challenges force some organizations—especially those that require a CISO to be compliant with federal regulations—to hire or promote people that may lack essential skills and experience. Instead of managing their cyber security concerns, these businesses put themselves at risk.

How We Help

Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) don’t need a full-time, in-house CISO to manage cyber security. These organizations can utilize the on-demand services of a Virtual CISO (vCISO) who provides executive-level advisory services at a fraction of the cost of finding and hiring a full-time, on-site employee.

Our vCISO packages are scalable and affordable to meet the needs of a wide variety of client organizations. Contact us to find out how a Securance vCISO can help manage cyber security for your business.
